When Republicans lose control of the House and Senate in 2006, and possibly the White House in 2008, they may want to ponder the following:Read the whole thing!
▪ Campaign Finance Reform Act (McCain-Feingold).
▪ Kelo vs. New London (property confiscation by the State).
▪ Free prescription drugs for seniors.
▪ No new domestic oilfields (eg. ANWR).
▪ No Social Security reform.
▪ No income tax reform.
▪ The abnormal influence of “moderate Republicans” (ie. really Democrats) like Olympia Snowe and Lincoln Chafee on the conservative agenda.
▪ Supporting moderates like Arlen Specter in the Republican primaries, for fear of alienating them. Yeah, that worked well: Specter hasn’t exactly been a stalwart defender of the President’s agenda since, has he?
▪ Outrageous growth in government spending, in a Congress controlled by Republicans.
▪ Unchecked illegal immigration, and talk of “amnesty” for illegals.
▪ Harriet Miers. Did GWB really think that this blatant cronyism would fly? And if this choice was not cronyism, but an attempt to avoid a fight with Democrat senators, did GWB not realize that we conservatives want a showdown with these socialist scum?
Here’s the thing. Almost all of the above give conservatives a simple message: passivity.
